Secondly, I know more then one marriage in those days that went kaplooey because of one or the other spousal unit unable to cut the apron strings from the parents. It really does happen. This move illustrates pretty well how this can occur.
If this was today, Pete's mother woulda been away in Florida and datin a whole bunch of rich old men and not have any time to hang around that tenement and annoy that girl; and the other parents didn't seem to be a problem anyway; and with their money, they'd probably be in Hawaii.
Anyway, a Coronet classic with a starlet that sorta has that wholesome Gidget look.

Subject: Postwar Marriage Problems
Pete gets offered a new job in Central City and the couple decide that they both need to grow up and separate from their families. In a sight that looks incongruous today, they make their move by getting dressed up and taking a train to Central City. Dottie narrates the film. As the wife, sheÂs the one whoÂs expected to put the most work into the marriage. Now she can lead the same boring life in Central City that she did in her home town. Actually, it will be worse. If she has a baby, sheÂll be even more isolated. Much as she resented her mother-in-law, sheÂll miss not having any family around to help out with child care. Marriage may be a partnership, but it looks like DottieÂs had to give up more than Pete.
